hi.. please tell me if my understanding is correct.

a.In map fields utility if we have same dimensions in the case files , for instance if i have the same geometry in both the cases the [mapfields -consistent] is used and I get the fields imported to the destination from source.

b. if i have a different geometry the keyword patchmap is used to map fields for patches that are co incident 'or' similar to the source file geometry
c. if a portion of geometry in the destination case does not coincide those patches are mentioned under cuttingPatches
